Insight: Superintendent Race / Bike Camp / Pet Tales / Summer Words


Published May 28, 2014


Superintendent Race - California voters have a 3-way choice for Superintendent of Public Instruction with the incumbent Tom Torlakson facing challenges from Lydia Gutierrez and Marshall Tuck. We'll examine some of the dividing issues with Steve Boilard, Director at Sacramento State University's Center for California Studies.

Bike Camp - The Down Syndrome Network of Northern Nevada at the University of Reno is partnering with non-profit iCan Shine to host a bike camp for individuals with disabilities. The camp is accepting applications for both riders and volunteers and starts June 23rd, with the goal to teach campers how to ride a bike independently.

Pet Tales - There’s nothing cuter than a kitten until you’re the manager of an animal shelter that’s become overrun with them. Then you have some hard choices to make about what to do with the cats that can’t find homes. Fortunately for the kittens that come into the Front Street Shelter in Sacramento, the cats are getting temporary homes until they can find the permanent one. Pet expert Gina Spadafori joins us with the Manager of the Front Street Animal Shelter Gina Knepp for this month’s Pet Tales to talk about saving cats lives with fostering programs.

Summer Words - The SummerWords creative writing colloquium returns for its third time to American River College from May 29 to June 1. On Insight,  ARC English Professors and novelists Christian Kiefer and Michael Spurgeon talk about what Sacramento poets and writers have to look forward to at the conference.
